WHY Stepping Stones?

“Stepping Stones is great and life changing! I greatly appreciate all it has to offer.”
(Stepping Stones Student 2018)

“I loved the community and just being a part of the group and knowing I was surrounded by godly people. I felt like it was a safe place to grow and learn in faith.”
(Stepping Stones Student 2018)

“My most memorable experience would be sitting on the shoreline on the Spring Crew Canoe Trip, surrounded by my brothers and sisters, crying out to the LORD to see his hand move. And he moved indeed. What a powerful experience.”
(Stepping Stones Student 2018)
